Itinerary

Tour Itinerary

On this Italy tour—our most popular vacation—not only will you visit the main Italian cities—Rome, Florence, Venice, and Assisi—you’ll also get to enjoy some of the smaller towns and scenic attractions. Visit the must-see sights in the cities, such as the Vatican Museums in Rome, Michelangelo’s David in Florence, St. Mark’s Square and Basilica in Venice, and much more. One tour highlight is Pompeii, which was completely buried during the eruption of Mount Vesuvius in 79 AD. This preserved town gives you an amazingly detailed look into life at the peak of the Roman Empire. Admire the paintings still on the walls, and look for the early fast-food restaurants beloved by ancient Romans. You’ll have an opportunity to relax in the laid-back town of Sorrento, where you’ll stay for two nights. Explore the cobblestone streets lined with shops and restaurants, delight in the amazing views, watch the sunset dip into the sea, and see Mount Vesuvius across the bay. You’ll also have time in beautiful Capri, where the celebrities go to “get away from it all.” On this Italy tour, Globus has also arranged some special experiences for you, such as an excursion to Cinque Terre, a UNESCO World Heritage Site, and a visit to the Gardens of Augustus in Capri where you’ll have incredible views of the Tyrrhenian Sea from the tranquil gardens. At Lake Maggiore, enjoy an exciting boat ride to Isola dei Pescatori, with dinner at a local restaurant; you’ll also cross the Swiss border and have a relaxing stop in lakeside Lugano.From the relaxing towns of Sorrento and Stresa on Lake Maggiore to the faster-paced cities, this tour of Italy offers it all.

Escorted Tours are conducted by motor-coach and usually no more than 2 nights are spent in each location visited.

Question: what is the method of travel from destination to destination during the tour. And is all the travel throughout included in the price?

You will be traveling on a comfortable private motorcoach with AC and Wifi. This is included in the price.

Question: How many suitcases can I take with me on my trip?

Each person is allowed one "check-in," and one "carry-on." Remember to take all valuables with you as "carry-on", because electronic equipment, cameras, laptops, jewelry, business documents and money are not covered by the airlines' liability, so always carry them aboard with you.

Outstanding Italy trip, everything I expected and then some.

By Glenn A on Sep 08, 2019

We would definitely book a trip if we knew Fabrizio was going to be the tour guide, could not have asked for better service and he made you feel like family and well informed the whole time.

Excellent tour. A little too aggressive for me but I knew that before I booked.

Globus does a fantastic job with tours! We will definitely use them again! I have always prided myself in extreme planning on my own where I research a country, figure out what we want to do, often involving things out of the ordinary, then calling a company and giving them precise instructions for airlines, car rental or private transportation to and from airports, hotels, and activities, the activities we want to do, and the hotels we want to stay. Using Globus was the first time we used a tour company that we actually left everything up to them. It was an extensive tour of Italy and was so well planned. We had an incredible tour director with excellent private local guides each place we stopped, very good to excellent accommodations, excellent food and activities in our Mosaic tour of Italy. We were in a brand new Mercedes Benz bus driven by a proficient driver and they offered 9 optional tours, which we booked and enjoyed every one. I had even requested to be able to do something in Florence that was not on the tour and our tour director contacted Globus and they made it possible to do in the 2-hour window we had before our optional excursion. We were able to basically walk right in to that particular venue instead of waiting in long lines! The mosaic covered every place we wanted to go and we did an optional 2-day post- vacation stay in Rome to do a few extra things we wanted to do in Rome and back in Tuscany. This allowed us to feel like we had an extremely comprehensive and thorough vacation in Italy. We noticed that Globus was given preferential treatment amongst other competing tour companies, too. Our tour director, Ursula, was very organized, loving, caring, funny and really made the trip so much better. By the end of the tour, we felt like family and many of us were teary- eyed to say goodbye to her. Several of us agreed that we would want her for any travel in Europe. So if you asked me if I would travel with Globus again, it would be  Yes, yes, a thousand times yes!

several of the experiences were not available

By Greg J on May 26, 2019

our tour director (Silvana) was great. She was courteous, professional and her knowledge of the countries history during the tour made it enjoyable. She provided us with local customs regarding food/rest stops etc which made it easier and faster to be accommodated. She treated everyone with respect and always took time to explain the daily itinerary and took care of anyone's needs.

All but one of the hotels was substandard and not up to par. Our hotel room in Sorrento (La Residenza) smelled strongly of sewage. Two other couples in our tour group experienced the same problem. We asked to be given other rooms but were told that they had other guests arriving soon and could not give us a different room. The next day they provided a different room for us but not the other two couples. Our room was affected the most by the smell. The Hotel informed us that they were aware of the problem but hoped it would subside. We have traveled with Globus on two other occasions and had very nice accommodations. We did not receive our travel documents from Globus on time and had to contact our travel consultant to remedy this. Overall, the tour itself was a good experience. The itinerary was extensive and had some nice optional excursions. I would hesitate to book with Globus again and would certainly look at other options.

By Delores B on May 19, 2019

Our Tour Director was Outstanding. She went out of her way to accommodate all our tour. The bus driver was Awesome too.

By Carol Ann T on May 05, 2019

Our tour guide Fabiana was fantastic!! She was very knowledgeable and kind. I would love to book another tour with her! I organized 22 people for this tour and everyone seemed to have a great time. We did become a family! Our bus driver Nino was also great and an expert driver with the big cumbersome bus he had to maneuver in such tight places- Positano and others.

By Joyce C on May 05, 2019

I feel Globus under promised and over delivered! Great trip!

By Nicklas M on May 05, 2019

Globus and Affordable Tours provided great service and a wonderful experience. I would highly recommend them.

By Cheryl M on Apr 16, 2019

Very well organized tour with an excellent tour director

By Esperanza G on Oct 09, 2018

Our tour, Italian Mosaic with Globus, was just as described. Our hotels, excursions, tour director, driver, and local guides were all excellent.

By Ludmila B on Sep 16, 2018

Great tour! Amazing experience! The only thing I would note that in some cities like Florence for example, we could have used a bit more leisure time. Otherwise great itinerary and everything is greatly planned.

By Daniel S on Jul 22, 2018

Globus provided an excellent tour with wonderful accommodations and friendly and knowledgeable guides

By Susan J on Apr 24, 2018

Overall we were very happy with the trip (Italian Mosaic). Our tour guide and driver were excellent. The itinerary was as expected and a couple of stops were even livelier than expected. The accommodations were acceptable, but not necessarily 1st class at a couple of stops.

By Barbara K on Apr 22, 2018

This was a fabulous Globus tour! The tour director AND the group of travelers made this a remarkable experience! There were a few hotels that may not be considered up to the Globus standard/ my expectations, but I understand that European hotel rooms are not all the same, and so each of us had different experiences in the same hotel.

By Linda J on Sep 26, 2017

I can't imagine taking care of the needs and expectations of over 40 travelers on one bus, but our guides took great care of us the whole trip. We were very fortunate to have such great guides. My advice to anyone taking this type tour is to understand that you will meet all types of personalities and you need to have patience and a sense of humor. Get a lot of rest and keep a positive attitude. In our tour, we became friends, exchanged information and have very fond memories.

By Kevin G on Sep 05, 2017

The tour and accommodations were excellent, except for the Michelangelo Hotel in Sorrento. Was definitely not a four star hotel.

By Kevin C on Jul 09, 2017

Trip was excellent, the tour operator took care of everything. I originally had reservations about a structured tour, because I wanted to go at my own pace, but reality set in quickly and we could never have seen all we saw if we went on our own without a tour group. The tour director and driver accommodated every request, made the tour enjoyable, personalized the dinners to accommodate personal requests, and made sure we all saw and experienced anything we had desired. This is the only way to go and Affordable Tours and Globus were both best in class. Thank you!

By Roger L on Jul 01, 2017

Great trip by Globus with an outstanding tour director. My only complaint is that the hotel room in Assisi, Italy had a terribly uncomfortable bed; in fact, it was a lumpy mattress.

By Ana Maria P on Oct 11, 2016

Hotels were city-centric. Although nice hotels, it seemed that as a single traveler and despite paying a supplement, my room was often smaller and without a view.

By Lisbeth H on Sep 13, 2016

The tour was wonderful. Our guide was outstanding (and fun anf funny, too!).

By Nancy A on Sep 08, 2016

Great tour. Saw a lot of beautiful places. It was busy, but that is the reason I want to travel. I want to see and do as much as possible.

By Barbara R on Sep 06, 2016

Our experience with the Globus - Italian Mosaic Tour was exactly as we hoped it would be. The itinerary included several iconic historical and cultural sites in Italy that we had heard about but never actually visited. These were awesome to say the least. The tour director was great - knowledgeable, entertaining, caring and attentive to everyone's needs. The hotels were varied but all were located in the heart of the action at each city which made it easy to get to places we wanted to visit. One thing travelers choosing this (and other tours) should always check on is that several of the best experiences are called "Excursions" and they cost extra. We wanted to do many of these things so we signed up for them adding to our total cost. Without them, we would have missed several of the best experiences on our tour. The ones we skipped were generally just large feasts at local restaurants, unless there was more to it than just a meal, we did not think it was worth the cost. Some were great cultural experiences with meals so we did those. The other excursions we liked were historical, cultural, or artistic in nature and all were extremely good experiences.

By Walter H on May 22, 2016

The trip was very demanding with a lot of walking. We were up just about everyday around 6AM. The tour director was extremely knowledgeable and some of the local were very good. The trip was very worthwhile, but I don't think I will ever take another tour that is this long.

By Gerald O on Oct 13, 2015

Our tour was interesting, informative, lively, comprehensive and FUN! Our fellow tourists were delightful; the tour guide was great.

By Sonia J on Sep 15, 2015

Staff was helpful and patient, listening to questions and promptly addressed our concerns. It showed understanding of our needs and flexibility to address suggestions. Congratulations

By Kenneth F on Sep 03, 2015

Although this was the first tour group I used to plan a vacation, it well exceeded my expectations. The tour guide was fabulous...if only I could retain half of what we learned! Walking was extensive so if you need to take a few pounds off....do it before the trip.

By Virginia P on Sep 01, 2015

Overall, the trip was amazing! It is rushed... need to make more leisure and alone time to walk around and enjoy the scenery, etc

By Emilita F on Sep 01, 2015

This trip was exceptionally wonderful. I love that our hotels was close to shops and restaurantd, centered at the heart of everything. We were able to wander off on our own during the leisure times. Didn't have to wonder how we can get from here to there.
